This year's Fairplay Tour started last Friday for the 18th time. It is organized traditionally by the European Interregional Pool of Sports, the European Academy of Sports in Rhineland-Palatinate and the Association of Sports in Rhineland-Palatinate and is supported by ministries, schools, communes, sports clubs, sports associations and further partners of the Greater Region. 350 young people will pass 750 km by bicycle through Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarland, Lorraine, Luxembourg and Belgium. They want to make a statement for a common, open Europe and its amicable collaboration in the Greater Region. A team of the Euro-BBW takes also part again.

Besides the shared experience of so many bicycle teams of different ages and different nationalities which strengthens the fair play idea, it is also about earning profits for educational projects in Ruanda. This year they want to build a primary school in Kadhero in co-operation with the German World Food Programme. From 1999-2015 the Fairplay Tour earned 2.800.000 Euro for projects in the Third World.

The Euro-BBW is proud to be able to contribute to this by its team. We wish good luck, good weather and a healthy return on 16th July in Föhren where the company Vet-Concept organizes a summer party as a sponsor (Dieselstr. 4, 54343 Föhren). All people intrested are invited to this event. Our team would be happy to be welcome by many friends.
